Agnes came to us in the autumn of 2015 and stayed into 2016. With her constant smile and energy she worked hard to reach her level and get on a Masters course in Sheffield. It was no surprise to us when we heard that she had graduated.

When I went to Hilderstone College to improve speaking and writing, it was the time I needed to improve my IELTS score, which was 6 in the average for the second time. I had to reach 7 in next 6 months. I had two fantastic teachers, which were Lee and Pierre, playing an important role […]

Sena, from Turkey, was a student in 2016-17. She worked really hard and it was a pleasure to see her level advance.

Coming to England and choosing Hilderstone College was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. I had so much fun while learning English because my teachers were caring, kind and tactful. In Hilderstone, there are always interesting activities to do and places to see for free times. I can say […]
